I had some hesitation with purchasing prescription glasses online; I’m glad I eventually did.

Here are few things you need to know before you purchase your first pair of Zenni Optical glasses:

1. You’ll need a prescription.

Even though the purchasing process is online, you’ll still need a prescription from an eye doctor and will need to enter those details into your Zenni Optical account.

2. You’ll need your PD measurement.

You’ll need to provide Zenni Optical with the measurement of the distance between your pupils. This information can be obtained from your eye doctor or you can follow the steps that Zenni Optical provides on their website.

3. You can virtually try on your glasses.

Be sure to virtually try on your glasses before you order them. They have multiple ways for you to “try before you buy”.

4. You can use your FSA or HSA to buy your glasses.

Zenni Optical glasses are an eligible health care expense. You can use your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) to purchase your glasses online. If your purchase has already been made, you can submit a reimbursement request from your FSA or HSA program using your Zenni Optical receipt.

5. Check the reviews!

Each pair of glasses available on the Zenni Optical website has a review section. Be sure to read some of the reviews to get an idea of how people have liked the specs your are speculating on purchasing. I know if I listened to reviews about a pair of frames I purchased, I wouldn’t have had to return them.

6. They have Sunglasses.

Zenni Optical has both prescription sunglasses available and sunglasses that can clip onto your “normal” clear-lens prescription eyeglasses.

7. They do accept returns.

Zenni Optical does allow for returns. As with ALL online shopping, your should be sure to check the company’s return policy before making any purchase.


I hope this quick summary helped! Be sure to check out my full review of my Zenni Optical purchases on my Review page!
